SLU’s Truitt named to lead state group

Keri Truitt, assistant director of student employment in Southeastern Louisiana University’s Office of Career Services, has been inducted as president of the Louisiana Association of Colleges and Employers for the 2013-2014 year.

“LACE provides a meaningful connection between members of college career services and employer representatives who recruit on college campuses,” Truitt said. “The primary purpose of LACE is to afford professionals opportunities to discuss issues, trends and best practices within their professions, to support the relationships between colleges and employers and to create relationships that encourage the free exchange of ideas related to recruiting and hiring in Louisiana.”

A Southeastern alumnus with a master of education degree in counselor education, Truitt has served in her current position at Southeastern for five years and has also served LACE as the technology chairwoman and president-elect.

A resident of Baton Rouge, she holds a bachelor of science degree in psychology from LSU.
